Abstract

In this paper, we present a new biometric verification system. The proposed system employs a novel biometric hashing scheme that uses our proposed quantization method. The proposed quantization method is based on error-correcting output codes which are used for classification problems in the literature. We improve the performance of the random projection based biometric hashing scheme proposed by Ngo et al. in the literature [5]. We evaluate the performance of the novel biometric hashing scheme with two use case scenarios including the case where an attacker steals the secret key of a legitimate user. Simulation results demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed scheme.
